    made it up to spring creek, co today with jace (lotsoftoys), jason (dot), jared in the yota rig and sean in the rubicon

    trail was tons of fun, filled with many challenges

    trail damage included:
    dent in bedside from rock
    7-pin removal mod
    mud flap removal mod (aka pirate mod)
    matching dent in other side of rear bumper
    many marks/gouges in the wheels and a chunk out of a tire


    here are some pics

    most of the action up the main obstacles was taken in video, which will come later

    full album

    approach to the 1st obstacle

    Jared on obstacle 3, numerous attempts to climb up and over the large rock were denied mainly due to the sloppy mess at the base making traction impossible

    Dude other than Colorado pinstripes you didn't have a dent in that Silver Bullet. :D

    That trail has changed quite a bit since the last time I was up there. The first obstacle looks easier than it used to be. and the 3rd one looks a lot worse.

    1st obstacle was sortof intimidating at first from the bottom of the hill looking up to the huge rock slab...but the right line wasn't too bad, jace had the wrong wheelbase for the line and manuevering gets tight below the slab...3rd obstacle is ever changing, and even when we were there changed a few times due to the ground being so soft...fun trail for sure

    ^^3rd was not that loose last time I was up. Rocks stayed in the ground and it was a one attempt for me then.

    Did any of you attempt the Rock Garden or did you bypass? This was where my T case bit it.

    Edit: Nevermind I see in some of DOT's pics that you did.
